When asked about a potential move to Liverpool, Nabil Fekir said that there is no need to forbid anything in life.

Jürgen Klopp might be preparing his players for the biggest game of their lives but with the transfer window open already, his team back home at Melwood will be gearing up for inevitable transfer negotiations set to take place this summer.

The Reds have already been linked with a whole host of players but there are yet to be any meaningful developments.

One of the most attractive is Ousmane Dembele while the most likely is Nabil Fekir and the Frenchman is keeping the door open on a move to Merseyside with comments he made recently.

When asked by RTL about the chances of a move to Liverpool, Fekir replied, asking: “Why not?

“Then there will be discussions with the President, with my entourage, to make a decision. In life, it is not necessary to forbid anything.”

Despite the fact that club president Jean-Michel Aulas claiming that Lyon don’t want to sell their star midfielder, he did state that any club wanting to buy Fekir this summer will need to be a “very rich club.”

The rumoured price tag for Fekir is in the region of £60 million. While that is a lot of money, it’s something Liverpool could afford given how much has been earned this season from tournament winnings.

The Telegraphs Chris Bascombe writes: “Liverpool are ready to build on their Champions League run by securing the services of Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir.

“The club will step up the pursuit of the Frenchman after Saturday’s final in Kiev and are confident they can fend off competition for the exciting 24-year-old.

“There has been a shift in momentum – certainly from  Liverpool’s perspective – over the past 24 hours and the club are hopeful a deal can be done.”
